Maintaining good oral health and brushing habits is important. Brushing, flossing, and avoiding harmful substances truly help prevent the degradation of tooth colour.
In spite of our best efforts, teeth lose their shine and colour over time as they encounter substances. As we age, our teeth become more porous and our enamel naturally darkens. This process is sped up by consumption of coloured drinks like wine and coffee, as well as smoking.
New teeth whitening technologies have been developed to remove stains in the enamel and whiten the teeth. They all involve different deliveries of a concentrated substance.
Our teeth whitening involves the take-home method. This method involves a visit to the dentist to be fitted for dental whitening trays. The patient then takes the instrument home, where they self-administer a whitening gel according to the dentist’s instructions.
